Samsung demonstrated two OLED displays for laptops at SID 2016. First up was a 13.3" 2560x1440 (221 PPI) panel. This display offers a brightness of 300 nits and is 1.01 mm thick and weighs 120 grams.

The second display is a bit larger at 14", but otherwise pretty much the same (2560x1440, 210 PPI) and it weighs 130 grams.

In January several companies (Dell/Alienware, Lenovo and HP) launched laptops with OLED displays, all using displays made by SDC.



Launched vs. announced

It would be nice to see those laptops in the real market, not just being demonstrated or announced to be available “soon”.

Good news. But OLED _backlit_?

Good news, thanks Marv. It makes me uneasy though, that the display is described in the specs on the HP’s webpage as a display with OLED backlit. Hopefully that’s just a mistake, and the display is actually OLED-powered and not just an LCD with OLED backlit.

there are ni oled backlit LCD

there are ni oled backlit LCD on the market. Why shpuld somebody do that?

Apple has an OLED-backlit-related patent

Apple has a patent related to using OLED as a backlighting unit for LCD. It’s unlikely that this has something to do with really existing displays, but who knows?
